Book 5 in Ann Marston’s much-beloved Rune Blades of Celi series
For generations, the Somber Riders have ruled the Calae lands. But this spring brings more than green buds, crying lambs, and sparkling burns. It brings new promise.
Destiny, that bold weaver, is pulling together three shining strands: A bheancora by blood, whose Rune Blade thirsts for justice; a brash young sovereign whose heart seeks vengeance; and a renegade Somber Rider, touched with Tyadda magic, who remembers a long-forgotten dream.
Great fantasy, quick pace and very involved story line.
Marston has an excellent sense of suspense and fate. Her stories have the fiber of legend, and reading them somehow feels as natural as reading Robin Hood or the Aeneid.
